Fairview Recycling Tips
Source credit: Fairview Town News
Recycling allows for used materials such as glass, paper, and plastic to be converted into new products and can help reduce overall energy usage, air and water pollution, and lower greenhouse gas emissions. One of the biggest perks of recycling is the reduction of landfill space needed to house our trash, which helps to keep trash off our beautiful Texas landscape. After all, it is recyclable materials that oftentimes end up taking the longest amounts of time to break down in landfills. The following data collected by the U.S. National Park Service and the Mote Marine Lab in Sarasota, Florida displays how long it can take some of these materials to break down once they arrive in landfills:
• Newspaper- 6 weeks
• Plastic bag- 10-20 years
• Tin can- 50 years
• Aluminum can- 100 years
• Glass bottle- Undetermined, though research suggests 500+ years
Ensuring that recyclables are reused, instead of increasing the need for more landfill space, can easily be accomplished through knowledge and taking important steps to improve upon daily practices and by utilizing Fairview’s weekly recycling bin pickup service for residents by Republic Services. Recycling is collected every Tuesday for those living in Heritage Ranch, and every Wednesday for other residents depending on which street you live, not taking into account changes due to a holiday.
The town does not require that you presort your recyclables.
Please remember, many of the items you use on a regular basis can be recycled instead of being put out as trash. Below is a list of common household waste products that can be recycled.
• Metal (all metal food and beverage cans; please remove any lids and/or food and liquid inside)
• Plastics (milk jugs, soda bottles, shampoo bottles, etc.; please remove all caps)
• Glass (glass bottles only; all color types; please rinse containers and discard lids)
￼• Paper (newspapers, catalogs, magazines, mixed household paper) • Cardboard (all cardboard must be broken down to a size that will fit inside your recycle bin; larger boxes must be flattened and can
be placed under your recycle bin)
For a more comprehensive list, please access the “Recycling” tab located on the “Water and Trash” page on the town website.
Next time you get ready to take out the trash, keep in mind that with just a little bit of effort much of it might be easily reused! As the North Texas region continues to grow, recycling will become more and more important to help sustain Fairview’s natural beauty.
